Entitlement spending benefits only specific groups whos votes the lawmakers seeks.
Lets get that straight first.
Defense spending, properly administered
Isn’t that the whole point that Sen. Conryn is making? If you’ve got too many admirals, then spending isn’t “property administered”, and it should be cut.
Well,doesn’t entitlement spending get spread throughout the economy when beneficiaries go to restaurants, cinemas, etc.?
Sounds to me that you’re a proponent of military keynesianism?
Of all the agencies and their entitlements in the national budget, defense of the country is one of the constitutionally mandated responsibilities of the federal government.
